Excel London is touring agencies across the UK this week to promote its expansion plans that will increase the venue space by over 50% by spring 2010.

The briefings will cover agencies in the Midlands, Yorkshire and London.

"This is a fun and informal way for us to meet our clients, update them on our latest news and to thank them for their support this year," said Excel head of conference and events sales James Rees.

The Excel expansion will include:

  • Semi-permanent Auditorium - retractable seating and dropped floor space, seating up to 5,000 delegates
  • Additional Conference Suite - providing space for up to 1,200 delegates
  • Additional flat-floor event space - 32,500 sq m (including 15m high ceiling in 4,613 sq m of dropped hall space)
  • Enhanced visitor experience - a covered pedestrian walkway from Prince Regent DLR station direct to a new east entrance plus additional casual dining outlets and more underground parking
